Notes from Presenting Data & Information course by Edward Tufte

Earlier this month, I finally attended Edward Tufte’s one-day course on Presenting Data and Information, where I learned fundamental design strategies for information displays including sentences, tables, diagrams, maps, charts, images, video, and data visualizations.

My actual live-notes were several more pages, but I summarized them nicer after the class:
